While thee I seek, pro-tecting Power,
Be my vain wished stilled;
And may this con-se-cra-ted hour
With bet-ter hopes be filled.
Thy love the power of thought bestowed,
To thee my thoughts would soar,
Thy mer-cy o'er any life has flowed,
Thy mer-cy I a-dore.
In each event of life, how clear
Thy ruling hand I see;
Each blessing to my soul most dear,
Because conferred by thee.
In every joy that crowns my days,
In every pain I bear,
My heart shall find delight in praise,
Or seek relief in prayer.
When gladness wings my favored hour,
Thy love my thoughts shall fill;
Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower,
My soul shall meet thy will.
My lifted eye, without a tear,
The gathering storm shall see;
My steadfast heart shall know no fear,
That heart will rest on thee.
